We’re thrilled to announce E Source exchanges: solutions-driven virtual events where you can collaborate with E Source experts and industry leaders to address the most pressing challenges facing utilities today.

Exchanges are designed to help you build a topic-specific network of utility professionals who can help you solve challenges and find solutions. We identified 16 topics to focus on this year. Our goal is to organize communities of E Source experts and members around these topics to exchange the latest insights, tackle obstacles, and share successes as they arise. During and after the call, we’ll provide insights into our research across all our membership services.

We’ve included the complete list of topics below. When you register, we’ll add you to the topically focused group so that you’re notified about future exchanges, new content on the topics, and more.
